It is a full of life and readable consultant to Alexander Pushkin's novel in verse Eugene Onegin, a landmark of ecu Romanticism, and arguably the simplest of all Russian poetry. Professor Briggs addresses the query of the way such extraordinary poetry could have been composed a couple of fairly banal plot, and considers the shape of the paintings and its poetic suggestions intimately. He bargains clean interpretations of the characters and occasions of the poem, and units it opposed to its ecu heritage. He discusses its impact - significantly Tchaikovsky's operatic model - and issues to its life-affirming philosophy and spirit of joyfulness. The ebook incorporates a chronological chart and a consultant to extra studying.

Sample text

Her concept of him is narrowed and reduced. This is a great step forward in her perception, and surely one which can never be retraced. It must not be forgotten (though it usually is) when her subsequent attitude to him, during their encounters in the last chapter, is under review. The other two events take the same form - matters building up in the evening to be resolved later on in the daytime but with greater clarity. At the end of chapter five, approaching supper time, in the unreal world of the ballroom, we witness the build-up of events which will lead to the duel.

This prosaic detail is Shades of unreality 43 important. Insulated by it from any sense of emotional excess, Pushkin is able to let the visual span, and with it the imagination, soar to the heavens once again. There, unsurprisingly, the moon is still waiting for Tatyana, but this time she is actually described as 'inspirational'. This is useful information, which we need for a full understanding of Tatyana but, as it happens, the Russian word is in itself an inspired one, because it has been such a delicious sound, vdokhnovitel 'noy.

Six, XXXI) A similar pattern recurs in the final chapter. Onegin en­ counters Tatyana in that fateful place, the ballroom (eight, XVII); their second meeting is at a soiree (XXI). Here, ostensibly on his own ground, where illusions can be built up and sus­ tained, he falls in love with her, but this issue is another which can only be resolved in the real world, in daylight. He sets out for his final encounter with Tatyana on a spring morning. The omens could not be worse. HX. Ha CHHHX. HCCetleHHbIX Jlb,llaX HrpaeT COJIHUe .
